Anyone else use antenna's these days. I just ordered one so I can watch the locl channels. After having to deal with all these cable company's I am so done with it. Pay $30 and now I have free tv.

Just wondering how many channels you guys get if you have one.

Theres also this site tvfool.com that tells you what channels you should be able to get at your location. Im mostly just hoping to get the basic channels so I can watch some laker games and football games.

i have an antenna on the HDTV in my room (i dont have cable in there)

i dont get alot of channels, and i mainly got the TV for the lakers (wen they were on channel 9) and to play video games

you will most likely get the basic channels 2-13..after that its a toss up and depends on how well your antenna is able to pick up a signal

this is the one i got

also, the lakers arent on standard TV anymore, you cant watch any games just using an antenna, you need cable/satellite

Yea thats all I need. I will be happy with just that. Cable company's expecting me to pay 30 a month for that. I am wondering what the new laker network is called cuz i'm trying to see if i'm in range. If not well I can always stream online
